Mixed Media Artist: Jody Carlson Cain

We've been fans of Jody's work for quite some time now. There's something about the playful way she creates her figures that always makes us smile. You can see more of Jody's artwork from her Etsy shop here. You can also follow her on her blog, Latitude Studios.

Play in the Sun
       "I am the mother of 4, an art teacher in a local middle school, and an avid art-a-holic. I have tried experimented with everything from fabric to steel. Quilted, welded, plasma cut, collaged, painted, cut, tear, you name it."

Be"you"tiful... one of a kind

Let me live

       "I played with this pretty cool method of collage and painting and found a technique for me. Born was Latitude Studio... the freedom to do what I want. After all, with out the rules, exploring is open to anything. You never know what you'll find!" - Jody Cain
